Silk Road 2’s “DoctorClu” Sentenced to Eight Years in Prison

The prosecutors in Silk road 2’s second highest admin “DoctorClu” case, got their wish as Brian Farrell was sentenced to eight years in prison Friday. It was the exact amount of time the prosecutors had asked for.

Farrell, who went by DoctorClu on the copycat site, Silk Road 2; was the second highest administrator on the site. The sentencing came months after Farrell had plead guilty to one count of distribution of heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine. Each count carried a minimum of five years.

When the Feds searched Farrell’s home on the 2nd of January they found three handguns, various computer media, prescription medications, paraphernalia, 20 silver bullion bars with a value of over $3,900, and around $35,000. As if the prison sentence wasn’t enough, the silver and all the cash was turned over to the government.

In a 2015 press release, the Dept. of Justice stated that the Silk Road 2 site had already generated over $8M dollars a month since its opening in late 2013. In a sentencing memorandum, prosecutors wrote that the case exemplifies “general deterrence.”

“The Silk Road model presents a new threat to public safety and health. The website expands the serious drug market to al reaches of the country, and indeed our world. The website reaches those who are to apprehensive to conduct a deal on the street, or those, say in rural areas, who may not have a direct drug supplier. This new frontier is dangerous, and a clear message needs to be sent that those who peddle their poison on the internet face serious penalties,” Assistant United States Attorney Thomas Woods wrote.

    ” The website reaches those who are to apprehensive to conduct a deal on the street, or those, say in rural areas, who may not have a direct drug supplier.”

    They just keep rolling with this campaign against DMs. The Feds lack innovation when it comes to propoganda. What happened to frying an egg as a metaphor for your brain ?

  4. Have a nice holiday DrClue. Take plenty of pictures for us, and we will see you in 8 years.

  5. i wasnt following this investigation. what was their evidence or a link to it giving them a search warrant in the first place? what gave him up as a so called “second highest administrator” an administrator is an administrator, there is no higher or lower administrators.They all have the same privileges while administrating the site

    • What gave him up? I know this is a very old article but dude, you are too far out of the loop to be shopping for drugs. You are a danger to yourself and others.

      What “gave him up” was Cirrus the SR1 mod and SR2, day one organizer. Cirrus was a fed that long ago took over the Scout account. So Clu (and everyone else) gave themselves up by working along side Cirrus.

    You can have all the OPSEC you want on your end but the second you give an address, any address to the seller, he will keep it un-encrypted someplace as a means for a reduced sentence if he ever gets busted. Just repeat and remember that. When (not if) a market gets taken down your info will become available. Best bet is to use a new DNM account every time you place an order and consider what you use for your name and mailing address. Or, dont use the DNM at all if you arent willing to do the time.
